As his New Orleans Pelicans teammates practiced early Thursday afternoon at Temple's Liacouras Center, Anthony Davis slipped out the front doors with a trainer for a few minutes of treatment on some part of his 6-foot-10, 220-pound body. Before Davis reentered the building, a passerby - not a college student, but a middle-aged man - stopped him on the front steps and asked for an autograph. It was an understandable request. When the best 21-year-old basketball player in the world strides past you, you want something, even a signature, to preserve the moment.

The defense contends that the two South Philadelphia men on trial in connection with a fatal shooting near the Palestra after last year's Public League basketball championship were at the scene but were not the gunmen. The prosecution says Kyle McLemore and Nathaniel Ortiz are cold-blooded killers who waited for Anthony "Tupac" Davis to leave the March 1 game, and then killed Davis as hundreds of terrified spectators scurried for cover. Those arguments lie at the heart of this murder trial, which began Monday and featured final arguments yesterday by a prosecutor and defense attorneys.

Eventually the expectations will increase and the bar will be raised, but, for now, each 76ers win is usually considered a positive and still somewhat surprising development. The Sixers often enter these tussles outmanned, but they are starting to play better together. The Sixers even achieved a first this season - leading from start to finish during a 96-81 victory over the banged-up New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. This is a team that can still look out of sorts, such as in recent losses to Milwaukee and Atlanta.

We have to admit we'd rather be in New Orleans dealing with late interviews and overhyped fans and crazy deadlines and the fact that CBS can't be on time for a first-game tipoff that the network itself scheduled for 6:09 p.m. but actually happened at 6:14 (did you really have to run a commercial between the national anthem and the player introductions?). But if you have to be home watching game action sprinkled among the ads, there's nothing better than following along on Twitter as Kentucky's Anthony Davis shows in no uncertain terms why he is college basketball's player of the year and the absolute mortal lock No. 1 pick in the next NBA draft.

Widener senior wide receiver Anthony Davis has appreciated many things about his college career, but he says the chance to compete in his own backyard has been truly special. A graduate of Chester High, the 6-foot-1, 196-pound Davis has cherished being able to star at college in the same city. And he will get at least one more chance as Widener (12-0) hosts Linfield, Ore. (10-1) in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal at noon Saturday. "More than words can explain, it has meant so much to me, to be able to play here," Davis said after a recent night practice.

NEW YORK - The New York Knicks had lost 16 consecutive games when Jose Calderon, one of their starting guards, spotted up in the right corner and caught a bounce pass from Carmelo Anthony against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. Calderon had missed eight of his nine shots in the game. The Knicks had once led by 15 points and, even though neither Anthony Davis nor Jrue Holiday was playing for New Orleans, now led by one. There were 38.7 seconds left in regulation. If Calderon missed the shot, no one at Madison Square Garden would have expected the Knicks to win. No one. After 16 straight curveballs, who still sits on a fastball?

WIDENER UNIVERSITY wide receiver and kick returner Anthony Davis keeps a nonchalant attitude about his dynamic play on the field, but the senior is definitely deserving of attention for his stellar contributions to the Pride during his collegiate career. Davis, a preseason Division III All-American selection by The Sporting News and the reigning Middle Atlantic Conference Player of the Year, is rewriting his school's football record books this season. He broke Widener's career marks for receptions and all-purpose yards in September.

Eagles fans know how an Andy Reid news conference goes after a loss - especially a complete and utter disaster, such as the Kansas City Chiefs' blowing a 28-point lead to fall, 45-44, to the Indianapolis Colts in a wild-card game on Saturday. Ahem. It's on him. He has to do a better job of putting his players in better position to win. Time's yours. This painful loss, though, brought in a new wrinkle - stunned silence. "Sometimes the game speaks for itself, so you don't have to say a whole lot," he told reporters during their time on Saturday.
